  • Players are to receive a minimum of 1 "touch or target"
    • Touch= Hand off or Completed Pass
    • Target= Attempted catch/dropped pass
  • Coaches are to fill out our rotation/touch sheet and turn it into our field monitor at the end of each game

Coaches & Managers

Our volunteer youth football coaches are USA Football certified as well as background checked to safeguard the privilege of working with our youth. We want you to feel comfortable with allowing your coach to assist with developing your athlete into a hardworking and responsible teammate.  Our coaches are expected to put the well-being of your child above their personal desire to win and to treat each player as an individual, with respect for the wide range of emotions within an individual age group.

Coaches will do their best to organize practices that are fun and challenging for all players, no matter what skill level. The goal of our program is to help our athletes learn how to play the game the right way, by developing skills and under-standing the rules of the game. We are committed to providing a safe environment of athletic competition. All reasonable steps will be taken to promote safe practices and to protect youth from harm, abuse and exploitation during league events and activities.

All Youth Sports Coaches are required to complete an annual background check.  Once the background check has been confirmed and the person has notified the board that he/she wants to be a coach, then the board will review the person and needs of the organization to get coaches into place.  The board has the final say on a volunteer being allowed to coach. 

If you are interested in coaching and want to declare early or you have questions, please email your division specific representative.
